For 150 years, Moët & Chandon has celebrated the thrill of living. With a bottle of its champagne opened every second around the globe, Moët & Chandon knows that every second is an experience, and every experience is a #moetmoment to live now.
On Saturday June 22nd, Nairobi’s finest personalities, decked out in their spectacular gold and white outfits, came out in their numbers to celebrate the annual Moët & Chandon Grand Day at a gypset brunch served at the luxury boutique hotel – the Tribe. Throughout the afternoon and into the early evening, Moët & Chandon flowed freely at the star-studded event in true panache. Gourmet canapes were served, designed around bespoke food pairings curated by a talented chef, as guests toasted with the vibrant Moët Impérial to an iconic occasion of their lives. The women and men, truly put their best foot forward and kept to the dress code and honestly, looked fabulous and dapper. Truly Nairobi is the home of beautiful human beings.
Founded in 1743, Moët & Chandon contributed to introduce champagne to the world by offering a range of unique wines for every occasion. From iconic Moët Impérial to the Grand Vintage Collection, from the extroverted Moët Rosé Impérial to the innovative Moët Ice Impérial, each champagne dazzles and delights with bright fruitiness, an enticing palate and an elegant maturity.
From day to evening and well into the night, Moët & Chandon brought together over a million people from New York City to Ibiza and London to Nairobi, in a bubbling toast to its universal icon of celebration. The festivities took place across 80 countries, and this year’s shindig was extra special as the champagne brand was honoring its 150th anniversary.
In Nairobi, it was indeed an afternoon of a spectacular elegant showcase of the true spirit of the Moët & Chandon house.
More than just a winemaker, Moët & Chandon is an integral part of the history of wine in France. Beyond the bubbles, it reflects key aspects of French culture, like sophistication, revelry and elegance— the pillars upon which this extraordinary champagne has built its international reputation.
“Moët & Chandon is synonymous today with celebration because for almost three centuries, we have combined our ‘savoir-faire’ (know-how) with our own art of the fête to perfect a unique ‘savoir-fête’ that has made our champagnes a great choice for toasting both intimate moments and important milestones,” says Alexandre Helaine Market Manger Eastern Africa Moët Hennessy. “On this Moët & Chandon Grand Day, we are thrilled to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Moët Impérial, our signature champagne that has embodied the grandeur of the House since 1869.”
